Roll off the highway into Highway en route to the beach

Someone wise once said that you should watch your back in pubs with carparks (because that’s where the brawls happen). And the carpark at Highway is HUGE. The beer garden is too. But whether you’re feeling pugilistic or otherwise, head inside this low-slung boozer for bang-up burgers, beers and bands (jazz, even). Halfway between downtown Adelaide and beachy Glenelg, it’s a tempting spot to break up the journey (the thirst-making 11km epic that it is). The pokies room consumes a lot of acreage, but let’s not go there… Pull up a stool in the Lounge Bar instead, watch the Boston Celtics on the big screen and chew into pizzas, fish-and-chips or maybe a garlic-and-lemon chicken burger.

The Highway says
A cut above the rest of the Adelaide scene with one of the country's best beer garden & outdoor areas, The Highway is much more than your local bar, with Adelaide's largest screen showing live sports & all major events.

A destination in itself, the hotel boasts an award winning Sports Bar with TAB, the country's best bottle shop and our Bistro is consistently rated among the top restaurants in Adelaide. There is also a 40-machine Gaming Lounge for those of you feeling like a (responsible) flutter. Functions are also a specialty, with our elegantly fit-out function rooms catering for 20 people up to 400 people.
